Returning: Versailles

Versailles returns to SBS for its third and final season next Wednesday with the introduction of a new character.

In this season King Louis XIV further grows his power, despite new challenges.

This is however very delayed, having screened internationally last April.

Episode One: Smoke and Mirrors
Louis celebrates victory in war by welcoming defeated Emperor Leopold with his niece, Eleanor. Louis plans to expand his empire, but Leopold has plans of his own and he seduces Marie-Therese – are his feelings real or does he have an ulterior motive? Louis dislikes having Protestants in the palace but Madame de Maintenon convinces him they are no threat – although prominent Protestant, Delphine foresees trouble.

10:40pm Wednesday March 20 on SBS.

  1. Ahhh-the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre-how soon people forget (see ‘Queen Margot’ for details). A bold decision to make it in English with a mostly English cast on French locations paid off.
